have declared states of emergency. let's get the latest now from cbs news hurricane consultant david bernard. david? >> good evening, anthony. a lot of trouble up and down the east coast tonight. sandy is basically not a drop cam system anymore, but the effects are all going to be the same. let's start with where the storm is right now and, again, we are looking at very strong waves occurring all across ptions of the jersey and also long island sound. notice just offshore we're seeing some of these wave heights still indicated near 45 feet, maybe higher. and even though the storm is here, anthony, it's still pushing a lot of water in from the east and southeast. in fact, i was looking at some of the tide gauges in just the last few moments and places like the battery and even further east along the long island south and south along the jersey shore, those tides are reaching their highest levels of the day as we are nearing high tide in the next couple of hours. >> mason: david, we've talked about the storm surge. how does it work? >> when we talk about storm surge, we're talking abou
romney when it comes to independent voters by 12 points and a cbs "new york times" poll that reflects the same numbers. a deficit for the president when it comes to independent voters. how does this work? michael barone is the senior political analyst and fox news contributor. i guess the theory is the republicans and democrats will be split and the independents will make the difference? and romney is winning with them? >> that's the theory. 2008 democratic party identifier outnumbered republicans 32 points. 2010 party identification was even. that's from exit poll data. if the parties are even in strength as when they are in 2004 and the 2010 off-year election then the independents are going to swing it because party identifier these days are strong partisans. you are getting 90-plus percentage of democrats for obama and 90% republicans voting for romney. weir we'll see something other than a 1% race in the presidential contest. megyn: if that's true why don't we see bigger numbers for mitt romney in states like ohio and iowa and these other critical states that may be required for h
schlessinger is the editor at large at cbs money watch.com. good to see you. thank you for joining us here to help us with this. you heard the candidates weigh in. how would you characterize today's reports, beyond what the rhetoric of what they say about it? >> first, let me say they're both sort of right. so each side has a point. but when you look at this report, i was so elated this morning, 171,000 is more jobs than we thought were going to be create the crea created. we thought there would be 125,000. you talked about the unemployment rate. let's discuss why it went up. it went up because we had a few more people, that re-entered the workforce, looking for jobs. that means they feel optimistic they can get a job. we have been talking about how people have been leaving the labor force, so we had some people come back into the labor force, that pushed the unemployment rate up by a tenth of a percent and another real positive, revisions to the previous two months totaled 84,000. we're averaging about 157,000 jobs a month this year. it is trending a little bit above last year. but the bo
in florida, according to a cbs news/"new york times"/quinnipiac university poll and out in ohio mitt romney trails by five points. >> want to take a look at how it's playing in the battleground. the headline in the miami herald. group braced for legal showdown at the polls this. race is so tight some are already worried about possible recounts. campaigns sending lawyers. >> some other papers have it this way. "the denver post," ryan and ryan visits on tap for slight for colorado. the real struggle isn't for undecided. it's to make sure that registered voters get to the polls. >> "the wisconsin journal sentinel say obama and romney make change a key issue on stump. nbc's chuck todd joins us now. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: the polls close in ohio in 108 hours and between now at 7:30 p.m. tuesday night when the polls close, i don't know if an hour is going to go by without one of the two candidates for president or two candidates for vice president trekking through at least one town somewhere in the buckeye state. >> i'm counting on you to make sure we will win. we can't lose. le
% obama, 45% rrm. virginia, 49% obama, 47% rrm. that is from the cbs quinnipiac poll. let's start with you on this, congressman. the good news is that the president's lead is shrinking. we've seen it go down dramatically in those battleground states. the bad news, though, is that he is ahead. even if it's a squeaker. >> i think there are a couple of things to think about on this. number one, volunteers who are knocking on doors of those who have not voted yet come back with a very different message than what you're getting in the polls. for the president, the fact that there are still undecideds and the independents seem to be breaking toward mitt romney, that is not good news for him. it shows the momentum is definitely with mitt romney. people want change. they want action on day one. and they've been presented a very clear choice between the president and mitt romney. >> do you have any concern that in a state like yours and states further south they'll go for romney by these overwhelming margin margins, are you concerned that obama will win the popular vote, romney will win the elector
of it. >> jared, we have this recent "new york times," cbs poll in which it shows that 36% say the economy is getting better. is one of the democrats' biggest fierce that if governor romney wins he's inheriting an economy on the up swing and would be able to step in and start taking credit for it? >> well, probably one of the democrats' figurest feabiggest simply that romney wins. i have heard this argument. there's something to it. there are very much economic cycles embedded in our economy. and the next president is absolutely going to preside over an improved economy relative to the last four years. that said, i think the important thing there is to look at their different policies and how they might impact not just the economy but also the budget path. and there i think not just democrats but there are legitimate concerns about governor romney's $5 trillion tax cut that he's yet to specify anything like how he's going to pay for it. so economy aside you also have to worry about fiscal health, fiscal rectitude. that's a problem for republicans. >> hey, jj, real quickly, hurr
, it's the battle for the state and the electoral votes. these are brand new numbers out from cbs/new york times and quinnipiac. three of the most important battleground states, one is ohio. the president has a five-point advantage for ohio with 18 electoral votes. florida and virginia are also battleground states, basically tied up according to the new numbers from quinnipiac. >> we have heard mitt romney wants to expand the map to michigan, maybe pennsylvania. people saw that as a sign of maybe going on offense, but if the ohio number is really five points or three to five points as we have seen in a number of polls here, it could be that romney needs to find another way to pick up the electoral votes and not get ohio. >> every republican who has won the white house has won ohio. it's tradition, you need it, but there's an avenue for mitt romney to do it without ohio but it is tough. eventually he would have to bring up the score everywhere else in the battleground states or try to expand the map. >> we are also hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yester
, david bender. >> happy halloween everybody. i've got some candy for you! this just in. the cbs quinnipiac and quinnipiac, the most accurate poll two years ago. the most accurate. obama up by one in florida. two in virginia. five in ohio. >> ooh! >> just in. >> i hope that holds. >> that's candy for everybody. it doesn't mean that we stop working. this is before people get to see his andrew shepherd moment of the last three days. >> stephanie: that's right. he is the president -- so take that. thank you. >> happy halloween. hi elvira. >> hi. that's a great treat. thank you. >> stephanie: make sure you keep your bathrobe closed when you answer the door tonight. >> that's a good point. i'm closing it now. >> stephanie: love you. >> love you guys, bye. >> you gave me a great idea with the romney poo bags i have. i'm going to -- you know, you could go around the neighborhood and if people have the sign in their yard, you could put them -- a burning bag of dog poo on the doormat and ring the bell and then they
